Breaking load test
Stranded conductors are installed and operated under heavy and sometimes extreme environmental conditions. This test determines and verifies the ultimate tensile strength of a conductor in order to ensure long term reliability under all circumstances, including during installation or when subject to climatic loads.
Apart from being typically carried out on stranded conductors, this test is suited for a variety of wires and cables, including catenary wires and feeders. Our lab is accredited for all standards including the common standards such as EN50182 and IEC61089.
